MAPPING CC TO ADVANCED PARAMETERS

Post by VL-Wizard » Sun Sep 04, 2016 12:58 pm

This tool is used to map external midi controllers to almost any parameter in the VL-Wizard editors.
First make sure that you correctly receive midi CC data from your external midi controller.
This is done by going to the settings and switching ON the midi-in port(s) that are connected with your hardware controller.

1) Open the Common, Effect, or Element editor.

2) Open the “MIDI LEARN” tool.

3) Click the Record button (ON/OFF) - The button will turn red

4) Send a Midi controller data by moving a midi-controller knob, slider 

-> The “MIDI LEARN” tool will show incoming CC numbers

5) Change a parameter within the Common, Effect or Element editor

-> The “MIDI LEARN” tool will show the mapped VL parameter/

6) Change the value of the external midi-controller and see how the
 associated VL parameter within the VL-Wizard reacts in real-time.

I don't know if the following is of any use to others and apologise if this has been covered in another topic elsewhere........

With the quite extensive amount of control that VL-Wizard is able to relinquish to external MIDI controllers, I wonder if fellow users are aware of an iPad app called MIDI Designer Pro 2. This is an app that allows you to create control surfaces of incredible complexity and versatility utilising a great many tools. If you browse to mididesigner.com for a look, in particular at the community based layouts, you'll see what I mean.

The combination of VL-Wizard and MIDI Designer Pro 2 should afford us amazing routes to create new or manipulate existing patches. I certainly will be seeing what I can do to reign in some of the complexity of VL synthesis and produce custom panels to control multiple elements simultaneously.

If anybody is interested, I've been able to use VL-Wizard on my iPad Pro using an app called Duet that essentially treats the iPad as an additional screen for your Mac or PC. Okay, so you're not actually running the software on your iPad but you do have complete control of VL-Wizard, using both a mouse and the Apple Pencil as well as touch control. Of course this applies to any application the host environment is running.
